Usually you have either loops or little metal spools in loops at the end of the strings. The little spools are put down into the slots to secure the strings. If your old strings have the spools, you can remove them and put into your new strings.

    Do the tuner have only slots? Some tuners are locking and a hole appears if you unscrew the top a bit. String over the slot then into the hole. No hole? Bend the string a 90 degree angle at the proper length and lay into the slot. Then you do a little under and over with the string and wind the string DOWN toward the pegged head. The string holds itself by trapping it beneath the windings.

How do i install the flexable pickup in the bridge groove?


You didn't say what make and model of the guitar or the pickup, so this is just a generic answer.
Remove the strings and saddle. center the picup in the bridge slot noting where the wire is located and mark where it needs to exit. drill a hole just large enough for the wire to pass through. Check where you want to install the output jack. If in the side, drill a mounting hole. If you're using an endpin jack, drill the appropriate pass through hole..

place the pickup in the slot pushing the wire though the hole, then out though the ezit hole. press the pick up in place with a q-tip, toothpick or some other nonmetalic probe. re-install the saddle and string the guitar. temporary solder an output jack to the wire and try it out before permenently installing the out put jack as you may need to reposition the pickup right to left in the slot to get the strings balanced. once it sounds right, install the output jack

How to string an electric guitar


I'm writing this tutorial to help new guitarists string their electric guitars.<br /><br />The first step is to purchase some strings from your nearest music store, depending on the type of music you want to play the string gage will be different. If you want to play heavier music such as metal then I suggest using a heavier gage of string. If you want to play calmer music such as indie, or maybe soft rock I suggest a lighter gage.<br /><br />Next make sure and remove <span style="font-weight: bold;">ALL</span> existing strings. The best way to take off the old strings is to simply loosen them up then cut them right in the middle with wire cutters. Then just pull the left end through the tuning knobs, and the right end through the back of the guitar (Note where the strings come out of the back).<br /><br />After you have removed all the strings its time to put on the new ones. Start with the string closest to the top of the guitar. On your string package you can reference by color which string is which. Find your string then run the sharp end through the back of the guitar in the hole relative to the string you are putting in (These holes in the back are the same holes the old strings came out of). Run the string all the way through so that it is pulled tightly into the back. Now place the sharp end of the string through its relative tuning knob at the top of the guitar. You should pull enough through so that when you pull the string up off the neck there is a gap of about one foot. Now turn the tuning knob clockwise until the string is relatively tight against the neck and it has wrapped around the knob 3-5 times. Now cut the excess string that is coming out of the tuning knob but leave about 1 inch in case you want to lower the tuning. <br /><br />Do the same thing for all your strings, then tune them with either a digital tuner or by ear if you can. You can purchase a cheap digital tuner for around $20 at your nearest music store.<br /><br />Enjoy!!

Cant get the buzz out of the high E string on my Epiphone les paul guitar


A buzz on one string is not due to a pickup fault. It's rather a too low string height at the nut or a string slot that is either too wide or has too deep of an angle towards the tuner. It could however be that you had the pickup too close to the high E string creating excessive string pull.

Nashville tele that has the g string sounds off when playing


if you have the adjustable bridge try moving it back a little bit. the g string is a heavy string and will tend to go sharp when you have the string height up a little. make small adjustments usually only one turn or half a turn at a time. take care to note your adjustments so you can always go back to where you started. turners are nice but the ear doesn't lie. if it sounds right it's right

I am re-stringing my Fender 140sce and every time I begin to tune a new string up, the peg pops up. Do I keep pressure on it to try and keep it in place until it is fully in tune, or is this out of the...


It is a little tricky, but you have to kind of pre-form the ball end of the string so it tucks under the ledge of the hole it goes into. Then put peg in and as you do pull up on the string slightly so the pre-formed ball end is caught under the ledge. Make sure the slot is toward the neck direction and the string seats in it, Also once the string is seated, kind of preform the string over the edge of the hole as the string is started to be tightened.

Hi, i have a acoustic guitar and i am trying to tune it but i do not know how to use the Matrix Chromatic Tuner SR-1050


Hi
Simply turn the tuner on using the power button. Play an open string note close to the tuner (no more than about 1/2 metre away) - for instance the low E on string 6.
The built in microphone will pick up the sound and, if your guitar is reasonably close to being in tune the led light labelled 'E' will illuminate on the lower scale on the tuner along with one of the three other leds to indicate whether the note is flat (b), in tune (green) or sharp (#).
Due to harmonics any or all of these three leds may flash but it is the one that is on the most that matters.
Adjust the tuning peg until the green is on constantly when you play the string.
Move on to the next string
Note - if the string is more than a semitone sharp or flat a different light may flash (e.g if the low E string is 3/4 of a tone flat the D light will come on).
If you wish to tune your guitar to another instrument that is not at perfect pitch (and perhaps cannot be easily adjusted - like a pipe organ) you can use the calibrate button to adjust the setting of the tuner. This temporary recalibration will be lost when the tuner is turned off.

How do I change the strings on my Dean Vendetta


How to Change Strings on a Dean Vendetta Guitar

Dean Vendetta is a company that makes a wide range of electric guitars. These guitars are used by famous musicians and bands such as Alice in Chains and Megadeath. If you own a Dean Vendetta guitar, you will need to change the strings periodically in order to keep your guitar sounding bright and crisp. Without changing the strings, your instrument will sound dull due to dirt and oil build-up on the strings.

Instructions

Things You'll Need:

* Dean Vendetta guitar
* String winder
* Guitar strings
* Electronic tuner
* Wire cutters


Locate the high E string. This is the string that is highest and thinnest and closest to the ground when you play the guitar.

Loosen the high E string by turning its tuning key counterclockwise. Use a string winder for this if you have one. Pull the string off of the tuning peg and out through the bridge.

Insert a new high E string through the hole in the bridge, up the neck, to the head of the guitar.

Thread the string through the hole in the tuning key so that about two inches extends beyond the hole.

Hold the string at the top end of the neck in one hand as you turn the tuning key clockwise with the other hand. A string winder makes this task much easier.

Continue to wind the string until it tightens to pitch. Use an electronic tuner to check the pitch.

Clip off the excess string with wire cutters.

Repeat these steps to install the B, G, D, A, and low E strings.


Tips & Warnings

*
Expect to re-tune often for the first few hours after installing the new strings, as they tend to stretch quite a bit at first.

Hope it helped.

Thanks for using fixya..

Hi. I purchased some Grover Rotomatic tuners on my electric guitar and am having difficulties figuring out how to put the strings through them. Normally where there should be a hole where the strings go...


If you see a hole on the thumbscrew post, you have to line it up with the hole in the solid post by screwing it in or out until it does. Then you put the string through. Hope this helps.

Need Korg GT-2 chromatic tuner help


well i hope you've figured it out by now, it's a really cool looking tuner and i love it. but if you are still having problems...
the switch on the left side: OFF, ON, LMP (ON with a little light so you can see in the dark)
The number and letters you see across the top of the interface indicate which string it is tuning to. 6E is the low E string (the thickest one) and 1E is the high E string (the thin one on the bottom of the guitar), i've seen many people get confused when they've tuned those two.
You can leave the tuner in auto and it will pick up what string you are trying to tune. but if you are having problems getting the correct string or whatever the case is, you can switch to manual mode. click the only button on the tuner and the specific string will light up on the interface.
If you press and hold the button, the tuner will go into flat mode, tuning all the strings flat.
once you have the right string and you're tuning it in, you want the needle to be centered.
that's pretty much it. enjoy!

Gibson Les Paul wont stay in tune


That's the problem; you're using light gauge guitar strings. Chances are that if you are not used to playing strings that light, you're fretting hand will hit the strings with more force than is neccesary to fret them, thereby forcing them out of tune. You can solve this problem by adding more winds around the string post (three or more winds should do it), or you can switch to a heavier gauge of string.

If they're true locking tuners, they should have a notch on the back of the gear housing that you turn with a nickel to engage the locking mechanism once tuning has been established.

Also; check the intonation of the guitar itself on an electronic tuner. If it tunes right but sounds out of tune when played, this is an intonation issue, and can be solved by adjusting a small set screw that moves the individual saddle back and forth in the tune-o-matic style bridge. You can check this by tuning the string to the correct note, then playing the same string at the 12th fret and checking it against your tuner. If it rings in true, you're fine, if it comes up flat or sharp, every note on the fretboard is going to be off by that much, and you'll have to adjust accordingly (turn the screw to the right to add length and lower a sharp note, turn the screw to the left to subtract length and raise a flat note, if I remember right).

Hope that helps.
